DHS Passenger Data System Crash Causes Major Delays

cabin-services-worldwidePassengers experienced serious delays across the US last week when a Department of Homeland Security system went down. The system, used to check passenger data with terror watch lists was down for more than two hours, leading to a call to use more traditional methods of screening, such as paper forms.

Although many international passengers were unhappy about the delays, manual screening continued to ensure security measures were fulfilled and the system returned to life at approximately 9pm.

No evidence of hacking was discovered.
